We had a great time and I won best actress

I encourage you to dress up. It was a lot of fun seeing most people dressed up in the 20's attire. It added to the fun of it!

We attended the Murder Mystery with high hopes of solving the murder presented to us. But with so many different characters, and clues shared so sporadically, it became really difficult to navigate. Even at the end of the night, when the murderer identity was revealed, we couldn't remember who that character even was. Not spoiling anything by telling you that.... More

This was the most fun either me or my fiance had in a long time. The actors stayed in character the whole time, even when we pushed them to break character, and the food and venue were perfect. Even though I wasn't selected as an audience participant it was still so much fun and and I still felt so involved... More

This is my second time visiting this location. For those of you have not yet experienced a murder mystery, just know that you will be sitting with other people. The first time I went, we were a party of 8 and I thought we would have a table by ourselves. We didn't but I am glad others sat with us.... More

My husband and I went to the Til Death Do Us Part" show at Millhurst, and had a great time. * The troupe asks for audience participation. We thought this was unique, and a huge plus over other murder mysteries we've attended. We might have had an unusually great group of participants, and it was fun to cheer on our... More

The play was good yet the audience was so much better.Peaple came dress to Kill. Custom galore and everyone was there to have fun. The food was better than the Oakbrook show. A good time for except for table 12 who could not shut-up while to show was on. They ask that you arrive a half hour early so they... More

First to clarify, the event is no longer at Sopranos but at Salvatore's. We had a good time but if going again, I would try one of their competitors. Things I didn't like: the room was so packed it was nearly impossible to move around. When we were instructed to walk around and gather clues they encouraged us to use... More

Overall, we loved this event - the actors were great, the atmosphere was engaging and fun. The mystery was interesting and required thought to solve. The venue was pretty nice, and we had fun. The only major con for us was the small amount of food that was given to the tables. I'm not sure if we were supposed to... More

The interaction was fun, they made sure to include everyone in the action! Well acted, and nice props. You can even get a picture, so you can rember the moment forever! They also ask if you could dress up for the time (1937, but you don't have to if you don't want to), but it makes it more fun! The... More

My boyfriend and I had so much fun. It was great to interact with others at our table and everyone seemed to be very involved. The actors where wonderful, super funny and did great improv. I would recommend this to anyone. We can't wait for the next show.
